Here are the harvest totals for January 2014, with approximate market value (using retail pricing from our local grocery store and the farmer’s market, with guesstimate pricing on items I haven’t seen for sale).  Pricing reflects produce comparable to what we’re growing: high-quality, in-season, organic fruits and veggies, and eggs from happy chickens fed an organic, GMO-free diet.  I try my best to remember to weigh everything I bring into the house, but these weights do not include the food that we graze on outside!

If you don’t care to look at the chart, there is a summary and total dollar value at the end.

Item January Total market value
beets + greens 0.35 lb $0.70
green onions 0.13 lb $0.54
mint 0.01 lb $0.04
napa cabbage 0.56 lb $1.12
parsley 0.10 lb $0.80
radishes + greens 0.53 lb $1.32
rangpur limes 0.34 lb $0.68
salsify 2.98 lb $5.97
eggs 131 ea $54.58

Summary

Total weight of produce harvested in 2014 to date: 5.01 lb

Total eggs harvested in 2014 to date:  131 ( 11 dozen!)

Approximate total dollar value of 2014 harvest to date: $65.73

Approximate farm expenditures in 2014 to date: $175.19 (Yes, this is high for a single month’s spending, and is definitely not typical!  Winter is a high spending time, as it is the time when major seed and bare root purchases are made.  This month’s spending includes about $125 on bare root plus grafting supplies; the balance is on chicken feed.)
